DirectID to double team through Kiskstart 

FinTech Alliance company DirectID says it will take advantage of the government’s Kickstart scheme.  

In Brief:  

  • Kickstart will subsidise six-month work placements for 16-24 year olds across six months. 

  • This is in response to many people being left on Universal Credit due to Covid-19.  

  • DirectID will take on 30 staff.  

What does this mean?  

CEO James Varga says the scheme is a “great opportunity” and has expressed frustration that more FinTechs are not getting involved. 

This could be because the scheme requires a minimum of 30 placements – but if a FinTech can’t take on that many people, FinTech Alliance can help you join with other companies. Find out more by emailing info@fintech-alliance.com.
